    Asik is a great rebounder.

    I'd love to have Asik but I don't think there's a good role for him to play in NY. He's not playing PF (doesn't want to, AFAIK) and he'd be unhappy playing 2nd fiddle to Tyson Chandler so it wouldn't really work. I'd much rather consider trading for one of their PGs...I'd bust a nut if Lin came back to NY

    I think Tyson and Asik would be a defensive amazing duo...might work, though i like Bargs spreading the floor. Remember before he came what our offense looked like...i think we beat the Pacers last year with Asik/Chandler going up with Hibbert

    We would have the same "problems" with Asik that the Rockets are having right now. He doesn't like want to play behind Dwight and he doesn't want to play as a PF. And how the NY media likes to blow up everything out of proportion another drama is the last thing this team needs.

    Bargnani's opponents shoot 42% FG against him. That's above average in the NBA amongst PF/C

    Bargnani only weakness is passing, defending the pick and roll and rebounding. He'll be an all star if he worked on those things to become average at them instead of terrible.

    Yeah his help defense seems to suck pretty badly. Hopefully Woodson can help him out with that...didn't we originally bring him in as a defensive assistant?

    that poison pill contract kills us...and I guess Asik would have to play PF so you would have great rebdounding and defense at the 4-5 but no offense if you lose Bargnani.

    BUt idk if we can trade Bargs since we just acquired him

    quicker than Eddy Curry can finish a biscuit!!!

    Bargs actually played some lockdown D on Howard when we faced them so maybe he caught the eye of their front office

    I think with Chandler returning this would be an ideal move...but they are looking for All Star talent for him

    Lin
    Harden
    Parsons
    Bargs
    Howard

    Thats really not a bad move on their part especially for a player out of the rotation. I mean honestly if I were a Rockets fan I would like this. This allows them to spread the floor for Dwight like Orlando did when they were Championship Contenders.

    With TC back

    Felton/Beno
    Pablo/Jr/Shump
    Shump/Melo/Metta
    Melo/Stat/Kmart
    Tyson/Asik/Kmart

    The starting 5 is the same unit that last season won 13 straight (for the most part) and dominated Boston in RD 1. (again for the most part) combined with a lot of size off the bench

    This could be a good move for both.

    I can't think of a trade we've done in recent years that didn't make the other team noticeably better and ended up being highly questionable for us.

    That's the story of the Knicks, without the Knicks I don't even know how other teams would compete. We make everything easymode for other franchises.

    I like Asik, really wouldn't mind signing him after next season (that poison pill contract is a no-no).

    But Bargs costed us a first round pick. I'm not moving him in any deal that doesn't help persuade Melo to stay. Asik isn't that guy, so no.
